Self-loathing

X: Objectively speaking, I'm a much more horrible person than you are. Yet I'm not plagued by self-loathing. Does the secret between sanity and insanity lies herein?

Does it mean that having a conscience/self accountability is a bad thing, as it can lead to insanity? so just keep on being from worse to "horrible" without any checks, any limits? Plus sanity and insanity are not like black and white, one's sanity can be the other ones insanity and vice versa..... Sometimes your writings are way too philosophocal sort of the way "art for art's sake" but good thing is that it sparks a thought process. Keep on writing! :)

Self-loathing.....I can relate to that. I have recently come to a realization that I beat myself up for my messes and little screw-ups, mercilessly. I guess, that reflects unchallenged honesty or high expectations that you have of yourself, or may be just giving everyone the benefit of doubt while completely depriving yourself of it, since you think you know yourself. Reminds me of the character of Pip from The Great Expectations.

being horrible (to anyone) is a consequence of self-loathing/some sort of shortcoming of the self. or can the two be separated?

The post is back :) thank you.
